i'd like to know about this place on granville too! i live for siu long baos!
but nothing beats siu long baos from shanghai! ppl line up at 6am for them!

Lots of places in richmond have pretty good ones too, a lot of restaurants have it's own siu long bao area where the chefs are constantly preparing them.

Did anyone catch the Xiao Long Bao contest at Richmond Night Market in the summer?

Bob Blumer from Glutton For Punishment was there filming an upcoming episode. He lost of course!

Looks like the consensus is Lin Chinese Cuisine!

The winners were:

"A large energetic crowd showed up, most of them cheered for Bob, but… Chef Miao from Lin Chinese Cuisine won first place. Their Xiao Long Bao that won last year’s Chinese Restaurant Awards Northern Dimsum category still stands proud and strong.

Second place is a tie: Chef Yip of Northern Delicacy and Chef Sonia Li of Point Zero, Four Fusion Restaurant.

Third place goes to Chef Jimmy Yang of Golden Fortune Restaurant.

Fourth place is Chef Peter Yang of Legendary Noodles.

And last (but not least) is the very host of Glutton for Punishment - Bob Blumer, who only had 5 days to learn the culinary art of the most difficult dumpling to make.
But the judges all agree Bob’s XLB filling tasted very good!"

tried Lin's earlier this week and it was alright. if i didn't read about it from this thread, i probably wouldn't have went in (lots of non-asian customers and some items on the menu aren't usually seen in a typical shanghai restaurant). anyways, if you like lots of soup in your xiaolongbao, this is the place for you. i just think they overdid it, cuz i could barely taste the pork inside. it was just a ball of soup.

prices are rather inexpensive, so bang-for-the-buck wise, it's worth a try. however, for xiaolongbao, i'd still prefer the ones in crystal mall. the ones in chen's (in richmond) used to be my favorite, but i think the owner stopped making them herself, so they're not as good anymore.

I guess I like the ones with a good amount of soup in it. I usually go to a place on granville street close to Flo tea house or whatever, called "lo day fong" I believe. It's not a fancy place, rather it is pretty ghetto looking.

+ 1 at the crystal mall one. they are cheap like 3.75 for 5 huge ones. and are served so fresh. Their other items there are good and cheap too

Richmond probably has the best shanghai food. Shanghai river is good, they used to be the resturant in front of Richmond centre, and have expanded to this really fancy place now, so you can tell how popular they are
